You can catch most of this one twice, if you know where to look.
Vitaphone/WB used footage from this short and Cab Calloway's 1937 "Hi De Ho" short to "create" another entry in their "Melody Master Band" series in 1946 when they released "Dixie Jamboree" utilizing in archive footage the performers, Eunice Wilson, the Nicholas Brothers, Adelaide Hall, the 3 Whippets, the Five Racketeers and Cab Calloway from two shorts made in 1935 and 1937. Warner Bros. led the world in recycling long before most of the world had heard of the word.
